In Rajasthan, the movement of private doctors against the Right to Health Bill continues at the state level. Due to the closure of private hospitals, the burden of patients on government hospitals has increased. Resident doctors are also boycotting work in protest against the use of force on doctors. In such a situation, the medical system in government hospitals across the state has collapsed. The state’s largest SMS hospital is also witnessing a huge rush of patients. On the other hand, the medical minister has accused the agitating doctors of doing politics.
Although senior doctors have taken the lead due to the boycott of work by the residents, priority is being given to essential operations in the government hospital. Patients are being given a later date for routine operations. Necessary operations are being done in hospitals. Those who do not need surgery immediately are being given later time.
Regarding the agitation of doctors, Medical Minister Parsadi Lal Meena has claimed that treatment is being done in all private hospitals associated with Chiranjeevi Scheme across the state. Patients are also being treated in hospitals where land has been given free of cost and at a concessional rate. The minister said that the strike was being carried out despite all the demands of the striking doctors already being accepted. After the passage of the Right to Health Bill, now the government is not ready to back down, so private hospitals are also not ready to withdraw their strike. In such a situation, patients are facing problems.
On the other hand, private hospitals and nursing homes society have announced to continue the agitation. The society says that now private medical colleges will also join this shutdown. This strike of doctors has been going on for almost a week. Private doctors and hospitals across the state are opposing the Right to Health Bill. Private hospitals say that the problems of private hospitals were not heard in the bill. With the passage of the bill, the burden on private hospitals will increase.
